I Might Change My Mind, But For Now I'm Quite Content
Sunday, October 28, 2012      19 comments

I've been trying to get some of the people in my running group to join my bike group. Today two runners showed up to ride, but the rest of the group I usually ride with decided that Hurricane Sandy was causing too much wind. They went to a bike ... Read more
Supportive Competition

Do you see the white haired guy in the background? His name is Fritz. He is 75 years old and hardly ever enters a race without coming in first in his age group. And he often runs 2 or 3 races a month. Twice I ran in races where he was also compe... Read more
Turn Around

A lot of things were not going too well. Two year old Gwen is sick. Naturally, she's fussy and that takes a lot out of me. Hubby has probably the worst cold he's had in over 30 years. It seems like he was a little sick for a couple weeks and now... Read more
Good Thoughts and Healthy Vibes

Think I can outrun a cough?? I just may try. I ran 3 miles today with no walk breaks at just about 6 mph or 10 minutes per mile. Did 10 minute warm up before and 10 minute cool down after as well. I'm feeling strong and healthy. I'm trying to th... Read more

The laptop computer I bought six months ago went out. No power was getting to the computer. Tech came to my house and his visit was covered by warranty. Replaced my battery, charger, motherboard, and more parts. When he left my laptop had power.... Read more
Truly Enjoying

Beautiful day here in central Florida. Our bike ride started at 54 degrees according to the time-temp sign we saw about 10 minutes into our ride. It was the first time I ever wore a jacket for our group ride. Needless to say, the jacket came off... Read more
Gone the Distance
Saturday, October 20, 2012      21 comments

I ran-walk-ran over 13.5 miles this morning. My group ran about 12 and a half and then I did a little more. Even with my back not 100% it felt good! I absolutely know without a doubt I can make a half marathon because I've already gone the dista... Read more
Overcoming Threats to Healthy Lifestyle

Today I went just under 5 miles in 70 minutes on the treadmill. 40 minutes of it was run-walk-run -- actually 23 minutes of run @ average 6.7 mph and 17 minutes of walk @ 4 mph. The remaining 30 minutes were very slow warm up and cool down. My b... Read more

I can imagine a different world, a better world, a healthy world, a convenient world: * A world where readily available foods are really good for you and the labels are clear and accurate. * A world where restaurants donít make you choose so... Read more
Feeling Encouraged

I just went 3.35 miles on treadmill in 50 minutes. I did about 10 one minute run intervals and a couple two minute run intervals and one three minute interval. I mostly ran at 5.5mph, so I didn't push pace. It felt good; I felt no back pain. ... Read more
Camera Woes
Monday, October 15, 2012      12 comments

I had a lot of requests for pictures of my new kitchen. One issue is that I don't have a camera. All the pictures I post are taken by other people. No camera-loving friend is available to shoot my kitchen at the moment. I've been thinking... Read more
Looking for the Before Picture
Sunday, October 14, 2012      19 comments

I've been wanting to find a good before picture. I can say I lost over 80 pounds, but a picture can make it more real. Here are a couple pictures I was able to scan today. I don't think any of them are at my top weight, but you can still see qui... Read more
Kitchen Update
Sunday, October 14, 2012      18 comments

Well, it's been two full months since we started renovating our kitchen, hiring a neighbor to do most of the work. It is about 95% completed and almost paid for. The neighbor is just being extremely slow about finishing the last couple items. I ... Read more
Showed Up Ready
Saturday, October 13, 2012      14 comments

This morning I showed up to run. I was there promptly at 6am, with my new Amphipod hand-held strapped water bottle. Last week twice I dropped a bottle from my fuel belt, so I think I've solved that problem. I was dressed in my favorite running s... Read more
